I liked this icing b/c it didn't call for shortening. It was a good buttercream icing. I doubled the batch to icing 2 layer cake and it just made it!

I have been trying to find a white or buttercream icing that is not super sweet. This is what I have been looking for! AMAZING!

Great icing! The recipe didn't specify when to add the butter, so I creamed it and then added the powdered sugar. I measured the milk into a liquid measuring cup and then just poured a bit in at a time rather than struggling with measuring in teaspoon increments. Can you believe it took nearly 28 years of married life cooking to figure that one out? It worked like a charm. I just poured the unused milk back into the carton. Also, I added the vanilla at the end. Anyway, Kelly, thanks for a very good recipe! I look forward to trying your white cake soon!

I was looking for a recipe that makes a smaller amount of icing because I was making a "Wacky Cake", which is baked in an 8x8 pan. This icing has a great consistency and wonderful flavor. Be sure to mix the powdered sugar and butter together with an electric mixer before adding the milk and vanilla. You will have a smooth and creamy consistency that way. Thanks, Kelly, for sharing your recipe.

I absolutely LOVE this icing WITH the butter AND the directions....... LOL
It is so simple and so good........plus the part about adding milk in TINY proportions is dead on advice.
I LOVE vanilla so I used 2 teaspoons and next time may use even a bit more.
Wonderful!
The ingredients called for will ice an angel food cake very nicely.

Made this recipe for chocolate cupcakes and sprinkled them with coconut, so good! I halved the recipe, however, and still had some leftover (didn't want to make them too sweet).
